Vijay Shikshan Sanstha - an Institute for Hearing Impaired

About Us

Late Shrimati Mainatai Ramchandra Gokhale started educating children with hearing impairment at her residence. Children with hearing impairment should not be deprived of quality education was the sole mission that she started working with. During that time, though there was no advent in technology, she accepted the challenge whole heartedly and started teaching one deaf girl.

Her dedication towards educating these students, and her hard work laid the foundation of Vijay Shikshan Sanstha in 1960.
